Head inside the center and head to the left, beside the Rotom Phone. Speak with the man behind the left counter to relearn a forgotten move of your choosing.
Choose To Remember Forgotten Move
Once you speak to the man, choose the Pokemon that you want to remember any forgotten moves. This will open up the options & let you change your Pokemon's move list.
Relearning Forgotten Moves Is Free
With previous Pokemon games, it was impossible to relearn forgotten moves or you'd have to use very rare items to be able to use this feature. In Sword & Shield, relearning moves is free for all trainers.
Man Can Also Make Pokemon Forget Moves
The NPC behind the counter can also make any of your Pokemon forget any of the moves in its arsenal. Choose this option if you want to free up space for another move the Pokemon may have forgotten.
